I’ve had problems with piles since 2007,and wasn’t keen to have them surgically removed. By 2018 I was needing cortisone cream nearly every day, which is not advisable. I read up on home remedies on the internet, and someone said honey works. I tried honey, and it took a while, but there was a definite improvement. The problem was that it’s sticky. Then I discovered Queen Bee Skin Recovery, derived from honey, which is very soothing. Seems like the piles aren’t going to go away, but are definitely smaller and not bleeding anymore.
